About the Authors
  • The serotonin transporter is a key brain protein that modulates the reuptake of the neurotransmitter serotonin from synaptic spaces back into the presynaptic neuron. This control over neuronal signalling makes it a prime area of neuroscientific study. In this book an international team of top experts introduce and explicate the role of serotonin and the serotonin transporter in both human and animal brains. They demonstrate the relevance of the transporter and indeed the serotonergic system to substrates of neuropsychiatric disorders, and explain how this knowledge is translated into valid animal models that will help foster new discoveries in human neurobiology. Writing for graduate students and academic researchers, they provide a comprehensive coverage of a wide spectrum of data from animal experimentation to clinical psychiatry, creating the only book exclusively dedicated to this exciting new avenue of brain research.

    • Comprehensive coverage of a wide spectrum of data from animal experimentation to clinical psychiatry provides translational parallels for scientists and clinicians
    • International team of top experts in the field gives readers the most up-to-date information on the subject
    • The only book exclusively dedicated to this exciting new avenue of brain research

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… essential reading and reference material for any researcher working on neuroscience in the fields of medicine, psychology, pharmacology and developmental biology, particularly where animal models are being used to further understanding of human brain development and disorders. … Non-specialists interested in this field, and willing to grapple with some academically challenging reading will find material to both furnish increased understanding of the background to current research and stimulate them to further reading.' Pamela J. Speed, Journal of Biological Education
